KALISPELL (AP) – Sanders County authorities have pulled the body of a missing Billings man from the Flathead River.

Ross Albrecht, 48, was reported missing July 28 near Dixon Landing.

Sanders County Search and Rescue crews recovered his body Friday about 4 miles east of the Perma Bridge after a pilot spotted it in the river.

A witness reported Albrecht went underwater and never came back up, and search crews found the man’s backpack and hat.
